Guest lesson Film for the Future

What would you like to see preserved in 100 years’ time? Eye Filmmuseum preserves an enormous number of films, they make up the museum’s collection. But why do we preserve all these films? And why is it so important? In this guest lesson, children reflect on cinematic heritage and explore it, based on the theme of school.

Making films

Pupils together watch older and recent short films from Eye’s collection. They learn about cameras and editing, make a storyboard as well as a short film about their own school. A film for the future. What would they like children to see about them in a 100 years’ time; what must be preserved?

Eye is celebrating its 75th anniversary and is handing out birthday treats
